Notes: The second generation Durango was introduced in 2004 and instantly came under fire for, well, catching on fire.

From 2004-2006 electrical overloading in the driver's side instrument panel caused numerous reports of interior fires. The interior infernos became so commonplace that Chrysler eventually issued a recall.

The problems didn't stop there, however. Owners of the recalled vehicles complained about being treated unfairly and given take-it-or-leave-it low ball settlement offers. "They offered me $2000 under NADA retail as a settlement," said one owner, "and have been rude and hostile to deal with." Nothing says awesome service like treating your customers rudely after their cars have already caught on fire.

The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Durango. While the contact was attempting to fill the gas tank, he noticed that fuel began to pour out of the gas tank once it became full. There was no indication that the tank was full before the gasoline began to pour out. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that the filler neck needed to be replaced. The current and failure mileages were 41,200.

The vehicle stalled intermittently. The problem occurred at least three time per week while driving at low speeds or while idling at a stop light/sign. The RPM gauge goes up then falls to 0, and car dies. Service dealer stated they can not duplicate the problem and suggested that the consumer use a higher octane gas. They also suggested that vehicle may have bad gasoline, and it is working its way through the system.

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

I have an 05 hemi Durango limited with 3,300 miles on it. Since new the vehicle has occassionally died when making low speed turns. The dealer has informed me that the PCM flash provided by Dodge has not corrected the problem and they are still working on a fix. Overall the vehicle has stalled five times. I have also filed a similar complaint for my 05 Ram 2500 with the hemi engine.
